in southern california. making their debut just in time for the holiday shopping season. the idea came from the cupcake vending machine, already a hit in beverly hills. caviar can be just as sweet says the vending machine's owner. is it about making it accessible to people? >> very accessible, convenient, at every price point. >> reporter: so it is caviar out of a vending machine in a shopping mall, but some say this just doesn't belong. >> reporter: owner david lenz says his caviar is served with more flair at his restaurant, not food court fudge. >> that's the part i don't get. i can see getting it, taking it home to have some champagne with it just on your lunch break? it doesn't add up. with a soda from the food court? >> exactly. >> reporter: we found plenty of caviar critics. >> would you put $500 in a machine? >> no. >> would you buy eggs out of a vending machine? much less fish eggs. >> reporter: but the flurries are buying for their daughter this christmas. a little luxury for the layman, conveniently dispensed just in time for the holidays. nothing too fishy about it. kyung lah, c
's exhausted, understandably so. leon panetta who come phaout commutes from washington to california he wants out. he's over 70 and wants to row tire. timothy geithner the treasury secretary wanted out a while ago and was pressed to say. i would think in the case of panetta and clinton that republicans will be unhappy to see them go because they are pretty popular up on capitol hill, a lot of respect for both of them. obviously hillary clinton with the libya situation there is some criticism there, generally speaking i think conservatives have been happy with a liberal democratic president having people like hillary clinton and panetta running national security. geithner not as popular with conservatives. and eric holder definitely because of fast and furious and other policies not as popular with conservatives. martha: it race raises the questions in all four of those spots, who do you think are some of the names that we might see tpulg those spots, chris? >> the most interesting one, i guess, is susan rice,s u.n. ambassador was considered one of the frontrunners to be the secretary of state
that at some point i would like 0 to get back to california. panetta is likely to stay in the post through the budget negotiations and possibly through the spring when they do the next round of budgets. so does that mean he's willing to stay in the pentagon for four more years? for the pool report, panetta told reporters, quote, who the hell knows? my experience in washington is you'd better do this day-to-day. as we reported friday, one of the candidates for panetta's job, when he does go, is actually senator john kerry who is being considered for defense essentially as a consolation prize if he does not get the state department job which is what he truly covets because the assumption right now is, and there's a lot of support for her inside the white house, the president will nominate susan rice to succeed hillary clinton instead. but if rice does get nominated she could have a pretty big confirmation battle on her hands. many republicans, including a guy like south carolina senator lindsey graham who normally ends up confirming a lot of the president's appointments, did in the first ter
. it's moving onshore. heavy rain at that, through california. and actually a series of storms will bring days and days of rain with several inches of rain each day possible through the west coast. but look at the eastern half of the country, from the plains, all the way down into the southeast, up to the northeast, we are looking for a good deal of sunshine. but a closer look at some of the rain across san francisco, moving up into northern california. we will see pockets of heavy rain, and also some mountain snow. we could see several inches of mountain snow out that way through the course of the weekend, and into early next week. but across the east coast, we are going to see a lot of sunshine, temperatures topping out in the lower 50s, and then for your sunday forecast, basically a carbon copy of today, still pretty nice across the eastern half of the country, and still dealing with more heavy rains out west. alex? >> okay, dylan dreyer, many thanks for that. >>> beating the deadline. new confidence in washington about reaching a deal to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. al
and racist. standing right behind her was my next guest, california democratic congresswoman karen bass, who is also a member of the budget and foreign affairs committee. nice enough to wake up this early for us. good morning to you. >> thank you. thanks for having me on. good morning to you as well. >> obviously there is a lot being talked about with susan rice. 97 colleagues wrote a letter to president obama urging him not necessarily to push her nomination forward if it were to come up for secretary of state. do you think that that letter is based on racism and sexism? >> i think there are multiple issues and probably not. and i do think the letter is interesting. we started circulating a letter, too, and within 24 hours got over 60 signatures. and when we get started again, i know we can go above that. it makes no sense to have signature gathering wars from the house when we have no say over the nomination but, you know, i think about it this way. our ambassador who is still the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. is in the middle of dealing with the gaza crisis, the crisis in syria, the crisis
learned was to love work. >> chris: she grew up on a farm in california, making enough from raising cattle to send herself to college. >> i'm really happiest when i am engaged and working and ♪ >> relegated to a group of people meeting in secret, plotting, some sort of scheme that they think is best for america. >> the fiscal cliff is not going to happen. so the ceiling, is not going to fall. >> chris: senators jeff session and congressman charlie rangel on prospects for avoiding the fiscal cliff and we're back with the panel. liz is charlie rangel right, the sky is not falling and the fiscal cliff will not happen. >> i don't want to say charlie rangel is right. look, i think the potential damage done by going off the fiscal cliff is so significant, that i would hope that even in the town that is divided right now, people will be able to come together to avoid it. what concerns me now, is that the whole terrain we're on is the argument about whether or not we should raise taxes, on the upper income earners, to get us through the end of the year, when the argument really ought to be, is t
banned in california. and now there are claims that it is entirely a scam. >> in another exercise, a man had to break through a human barricade that i was a part of in order to seize two oranges that were meant to symbolize his testicles. he was then frenetically instructed to squeeze the juice and drink from them and put the oranges in his pants in order to represent gaining his testicles. the symbolic absence of them supposedly being a cause of his homosexuality. in retrospect, these practices fall on a range between absurd to disturbing. >> that was one of the plaintiffs in this case. and joining me now is cnn's alan duke, who's written extensively on this. who's involved in this lawsuit? and what are the claims that are being made? >> michael ferguson, who you saw, was 19 when he underwent this reparative therapy or conversion therapy at jona, a new jersey-based organization, that offers this. and there were three others. two were 17 when they started. their parents joined or at least their moms joined this lawsuit, wanting their money back and wanting damages for the damage that the
, california striking down their three-strikes law. that says let's not have nonviolent drug offenders go away to jail for a long time. judges and police say this is a losing battle. let's move towards treatment and decriminalization and treat it like alcohol rather than prohibition and criminalization. we have a mexican president saying, hey, let's look at a different way to treat this thing. let's talk about what he recently said. in favor of opening a new debate in the strategy in the way we fight drug traffickings. it's clear after several decades we have more drug consumption, drug use, drug trafficking. things are not working. a change in the drug policy would have a massive impact on the economy and on crime in both north america and throughout south america, and would lead the way and open the path toward a more humane immigration policy and people in america accepting them. >> i think you're right. it's been interesting. as things have moved politically in terms of the war on drugs, we've also, of course, seen after this election potential movement on comprehensive immigration reform.
in our state delegations and across the country. i'm very proud that in california our delegation of democrats is a majority of women, not even counting our two senators, senator feinstein and senator boxer so women are empowered in california. i'm also want to acknowledge that although our numbers are great here, two of our colleagues have gone on to the senate, senator-elect tammy baldwin and we're very proud of that. [ applause ] senator-elect macy hirano, only the second woman of color to serve in the senate. that's pretty exciting and unfortunately we won't have kathy hochul and betty sutton in this next congress, but the future is soon and coming upon us and we know they will be making a great public contribution. so here we are in the past week since the election, we're still finishing up some of our campaigns, we're very proud of the success as i said yesterday and as you see here today. why is it important for us to make this statement of the strength of women in the congress of the united states? of the house democratic women? because this is where the hopes and dreams o
, including u.s. ambassador chris stevens, were murdered. california congressman ed royce sits on the house foreign affairs committee. he chairs the house terrorism subcommittee. i know you will be heading in there in just a moment. thanks for taking a few minutes with us. the president offered almost no information yesterday in the news conference on benghazi. he refused to say if he issued an immediate order to help those under attack. are you disappointed that the president hasn't been more forthcoming? >> well, i think we're disappointed in several things. one, we had a team of 16 security personnel that were pulled out, that were pulled out of the theater before the attack. that was very unfortunate. second, the quick reaction force did not arrive in time to save our americans and every indication is that that was a delayed response. the third point of course is that to try to spin this after the attack, an attack that occurred on 9/11, to try to argue this was a protest against a video that spun out of control when we already had the evidence and indeed an al qaeda affiliate was claim
to it at all. ann is in california. >> caller: what i was going to say is words matter, so some of the words i like to use that people totally get, is the only entitlement program we should be talking about is the entightments for the rich and famous. that is their -- they feel so freaken entitled. and the other phrase i use is needy billionaires. >> bill: yeah, yeah right. i like that. it is interesting that they are always saying you know -- they are against all of these handouts, right? and romney complaining about obama giving away gifts to various groups of americans, and that's how he won the election but boy, they have their hand out more than everybody else. right? >> caller: absolutely. and they feel totally entitled to every strap they can sponge off of the rest of us. >> caller: yes it's greedy greedy bastards that make up 2% of the wealthiest americans. not all of them. >> caller: not all of them. the millionaires are kind of with us on this, but definitely not the billionaires. >> caller: yeah. we had one of the former aol executives, and he said hey, we hav
